Talor Tries….Zesty Green Juice

You can also read this post on Fashion Fix Daily!

I drink these most mornings,  no I am not jumping on the healthy bandwagon, I am simply posting this recipe because people seem to be really into this healthy crap in January. Don’t worry I’ll be onto the pancake recipes by next month. 

Why is it when someone drinks a green smoothie people immediately assume you are a health fiend or on a juice cleanse? I genuinely have this most mornings because it is so easy to make and it tastes great. I don’t know about you but that is exactly what I need at 6am.

This is the kind of drink that not only wakes you up but also your insides because it’s so refreshing and tangy.

You will need: Apple, Ginger, Spinach, Carrot, Lemon, Apple juice, Pea protein (optional).

Step One

Either cut or grate your apple and half a carrot into small pieces so that it is kind to your blender. By this I mean don’t make it work too hard, especially if you are like me and it is a cheap one. (It’s lasted me a while because I treat it well, know what I mean?)

Step Two

Grate a thumb sized piece of ginger so it looks nice and slushy, then grate 1/4 or 1/2 of your lemon. It really depends on how tart you want this drink to be.

Step Three

Add your grated carrot, apple, ginger and lemon to the blender or juicer. Then add a large handful of spinach and a heaped tablespoon of pea protein. Once everything is in fill it up as much as you would like with apple juice. AND BLEND

Note: The reason why I use Pea Protein instead of whey protein is because I am not clued up on protein, so with this particular kind I know exactly what I am consuming. (It is also: vegan, gluten free, soya free, non GM and has no added sugars or sweeteners.)

 

What smoothie do you pretend to enjoy this time of year?
